Weather, sunny, partly cloudy , Wind north  easterly 15mph.

A quieter than expected day at the Lighthouse, with few migrants in the area mainly due down to the clear weather conditions over night causing many of yesterdays  birds  to fly through  , 

Surprise bird of the day was a  Spoonbill that flew over to the  east and unfortunately didn't stop, other birds that passed over were Yellow Wagtail, Lesser Redpoll and Siskin,,

9 Wheatear were mainly in the paddocks west of the lighthouse and in the fields south of Park lane along with a single Whinchat at the old brick pit ,

At Lingham lane towards the railway end, 2 Possibly 3 Lesser Whitethroat were seen along the hedgerows giving quite brief glimpses, their song was quite clear and not as scratchy as the common Whitethroat, 

Other birds in the area were, Blackcap, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Common Whitethroat, and good numbers of Swallow

Observers , DH, KD, TK, TE, AC, JJ, GC.
